The Leonor Greyl Difference
Leonor Greyl’s award-winning hair care products are truly revolutionary and superior to conventional products for several very important reasons. Many hair care experts and long-time customers agree.
Always High Grade, Natural Ingredients
Designed and created with great care using only all-natural plant extracts, vitamins and other healthy ingredients, Leonor Greyl products give your hair more brilliance, more glamour, and more beauty –all with a healthy lifestyle in mind.
Many hair care product manufacturers take short cuts in their ingredients and production. Too often they use lower cost chemicals and harsh additives to achieve results –often at the expense of the well-being of the consumer. Not true at Leonor Greyl! Years and years of global sourcing of botanicals and natural ingredients and meticulous R&D and testing in the Leonor Greyl Institute has resulted in award-winning formulas most hair care manufacturers will never match.
Many ingredients used in Leonor Greyl product are certified BIO by Ecocert and come from sustainable sources around the world.
Effective and Safe Hair Condition Treatments
Each individual Leonor Greyl hair care product delivers amazing results on its own. And when used in specific combinations, they become very powerful treatments and remedies of undesirable hair conditions.
The Leonor Greyl R&D team has designed products to be integrative and when specific treatment regimens are followed as prescribed they are extremely effective. Treatments for hair conditions such as hair loss, dry hair, dandruff, oily hair and other unwanted conditions have been thoroughly tested in the Leonor Greyl Institute and in hair treatment clinics and spas around the world.
SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) is a powerful cleaning agent and a common component of many domestic cleaning products. SLS is also present in many supposedly “safe” hair care products and cosmetics. In reality, SLS can cause skin and eye irritation, itchy scalp, and hair loss. SLS should be avoided by those with sensitive skin. Sulfates are the reason why a drop of shampoo stings your eyes so badly.
All Leonor Greyl hair care products are free from SLS.
Silicones work by covering hair with a waterproof coating to help reduce moisture absorption and loss, and make it more slippery and less tangled. There are several different silicones used in conventional hair care –the most common are Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone Copolyol, Amodimethicone, and Dimethicone.
Unfortunately, there are disadvantages involved with silicone use. Silicone can be difficult to remove and can attract dirt and pollutants from the air making the hair feel weighed down.
Products containing parabens, a synthetically produced chemical preservative, can cause skin and hair irritation, and contact dermatitis and rosacea in individuals with paraben allergies.
Alarmingly, parabens are becoming increasingly controversial because they have been found in breast cancer tumors and can mimic estrogen (a hormone known to play a role in the development of breast cancer). Also, parabens may be a factor in the increasing prevalence of early puberty in girls.
All Leonor Greyl hair care products are free from Parabens.
Coal Tar Free
Coal tar has been found to cause skin irritation, photo-sensitivity, allergic reactions, asthma attacks, headaches, nausea, fatigue, nervousness, and lack of concentration. Women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant should avoid using coal tar shampoo, because the active ingredient could harm an unborn baby.
While the FDA acknowledges that coal tar is a carcinogen under certain conditions, it has taken the position that it still safe for use as an active ingredient in many popular dandruff shampoos. Many manufacturers agree. We are not convinced.
Conventional shampoos are meant to give a thorough cleanse to the dirtiest hair. To do this, they contain harsh detergents, such as SLS, that strip away oils so that your hair feels “squeaky clean.” These detergents exfoliate your hair, leaving it stripped of its natural oils, dried out, and damaged. This will not only dry out your hair and make it dull, but it makes your color fade faster.
The gentle ingredients of Leonor Greyl products thoroughly cleanse hair to remove oil and dirt without damage. And its high-performance ingredients provide extra hydration and help strengthen hair.
LG products also contain natural ingredients that counteract the damage or dryness often caused by hair dye. Color-treated hair is especially vulnerable to damage, so it’s best to use products that compensate and provide extra protection. Leonor Greyl “color safe” doesn’t end with shampoo and conditioner –all of our products are safe for color-treated hair.
We are adamantly opposed to using animals to test hair care and personal care products. Animal studies teach us nothing about the health of humans because animals of different species absorb, metabolize, and eliminate substances differently than humans do. The truth is that testing on animals is bad science: It is unreliable and unnecessary.
